  1. Nicole warmed up for the Avett Bros at the Stone Pony a couple of weeks ago.  Great show.  The brothers asked Nicole to come back out and she obliged. When she lived in NC she spent a lot of time with the band and actually convinced them to come up to NJ for a show a few years back when no one had even heard of them. Check out this video at 0:20 and again at 3:43.

  2. Sorry folks. We are making some changes on the backend. It wasn't supposed to happen until the first. But as all well laid plans go, we had a hiccup. I assure you the site will be back in some form shortly. It may take a little bit to get everything back up again. But it will happen. The content is not lost.

    I was actually just coming here to post about it so as not to freak anyone out.

    We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.


  3. Please join me in wishing one of the greatest regina fans on the planet a happy 10th anniversary on the stix. srg (Serge) is one of the kindest human beings around as anyone that has met him or interacted with him can attest. He shares his historical knowledge about reg with us. Not to mention all the media at reginaspektor.net.

    What sums him up best to me was after the Planned Parenthood show, in January of 2009, at the Bowery Ballroom a group of us were lucky enough to spend some real quality time with regina (as her parents slept in the car) after the show. Many topics were discussed. But the one that sticks out in my mind was she told us about being contacted by a producer that wanted to use Lucky Penny. At first she said she freaked out a bit because she couldn't remember the song. Then she said something to the effect of, thank God for that reginaspektor.net or I never would have found a recording of it. Not one to seek the limelight Serge said nothing. But we were sure to point out that it was his website.

    Then of course all the meetups over the years before and after shows and the genorosity he has shown to all of us. The tickets he has shared with many of us. The "upgraded tickets" he has shared. I could go on and on about this mans kindness and genorosity. He is by far THE greatest regina fan of all time.

    Happy Anniversary Serge...and many more.


  4. I'm listening to Another Town... I've never given it a real listen before... I really like it. I feel like this is one of the first "atmospheric" songs I've heard from Regina, honestly, at least one like this..

    I love this song. Been holding out hope (no pun intended) that she will play this live someday. But I don't think it will happen. It's a shame this song doesn't get the notice it deserves. Her "I love you" choruses are silky smooth...

    Sad to miss Petty Fest tonight but it's because we're playing the Beacon Theater! Can't wait :)

  6. Time Out says:

    Thanks to the ascent of ladies such as Ingrid Michaelson, Sara Bareilles and Christina Perri, the female quirk-pop field is a lot more crowded now than it was when Regina Spektor broke through with “Fidelity,” the oft-licensed semihit from her 2006 album, Begin to Hope. Yet one needn’t proceed too deeply into Spektor’s latest before remembering what an idiosyncratic talent she remains: On What We Saw from the Cheap Seats, this New York City songstress continues to examine the vagaries of life, love and art with an eye for the calm-disturbing detail. “First there’s lights out, then there’s lockup,” she sings on the disc’s spooky lead single, “All the Rowboats,” which continues, “Masterpieces serving maximum sentences.” To whom else would it even occur to write a tune about a museum’s lonely inhabitants?

    Spektor made Cheap Seats with producer Mike Elizondo, who also helmed a handful of cuts on 2009’s Far; he brings a kind of sublimated funk to songs like “Small Town Moon,” in which a creeping bassline underpins the singer’s observation that “today we’re younger than we’re ever gonna be.” That said, don’t be surprised if she jettisons some of the album’s precision in favor of a rawer attack tonight: Last May Spektor played a string of Southern arena dates opening for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.—Mikael Wood

  7. I have two extra tickets for Brandi Carlile for Monday Oct 29, 8PM at the Beacon Theater in NYC.

    They are currently up on Stub Hub but I will pull them down if anyone is interested. Face Value ($40 each + fees)

    TICKETS SOLD!


  8. I think someone a long time ago signed in with a very similar username to "regina". It might have even been "Regina" with a capitol R. Anyway, if I remember correctly, I feel like everyone freaked out and started posting about it.

    Or maybe I'm completely fabricating this from false memory. ;_;

    You are correct on all accounts. regina spektor herself has a lower case "regina". But as we all know she hasn't posted in years. I imagine she does take a peek every now and then. Her member profile shows someone signed in back in November of 2011. But we may never know if that was her or not.


  9. If you're using a mobile device you may want to check out the "Change Theme" button near the bottom of the page. Just tried it (IP.Board Mobile). It's formatted in the more familiar way that some folks have alluded to. I am pleased by the changes including the default "Full Version" Theme with the reg's?? fingers. The PM feature is great. Change is good...
